Study: Watching TV  removes stress

A new research shows that viewing television and playing video games after a difficult work day could cause individual feelings of regret and failure.

When many individuals have a difficult day at the office, they wish nothing more than to go home, enjoy and relax television or play a computer game. These tasks are thought of as unwinding, but this new study recommends that making use of media commonly lead to feelings of personal shame and failure where the moment invested with media is taken thrown away.

The researchers questioned the volunteers about their previous day at job or college and if they played a video clip game or viewed television afterwards. Those that felt the most worried out concerning their work or task situations confessed they really felt guilty about squandering time with both types of media, instead compared to attending to other jobs they deemed more important. Remarkably sufficient, previous research has actually revealed that computer games and television typically aid individuals recover after stressful situations, yet this new study disputes that. It shows that there could be a fine line  between using media on a much heavier day of tension compared to on a lighter day of tension. Undoubtedly, additional research studies might be needed to describe the distinctions.

“We are beginning to far better recognize that media usage can have beneficial impacts for individuals’s well-being via media-induced recuperation,” said Dr. Reinecke. “In times of smartphones and mobile Web, the ubiquitous availability of content and communication usually seems to be a burden and a stressor rather than a recuperation resource.”.

A previous study reveals that playing video games on your mobile phone while at job can in fact make you feel much less pressured and result in greater efficiency. Maybe the remedy is consisting of even more time at work to utilize de-stressors, like games and viewing YouTube, resulting in a much less demanding work day.
